Regarding single initiator, multi target zones for a VTL

Could you please put your view  about single initiator multi target zones forr a server and a VTL.

Although the brocade best practices always recomends for single initiator and single target Zoning.

Please share what could be the best procedure to create a single initiator , multi target zoning withina  a server and a VTL connected to a DCX backbone.

Thanks !!!

Re: Regarding single initiator, multi target zones for a VTL

The most administrative burdon, but most flexibilty would be to

(per fabric)

-create an alias for the host hba

-for each vtl target port > create alias.

-for each host create one zone>> add host alias and each vtl alias created in previous step.

-for each zone add to the config

-cfgenable

done.
